British band fronted by Carl Barat and Pete Doherty. Their songs often contain traces of The Clash, The Buzzcocks, The Jam, and The Smiths. Very mythic history and an even more unstable future, it seems. Gayest "straight" band in rock, according to the NME.
The Libertines are so fucking gay - but in a good way.
The Libertines are a British indie pop rock band fronted by Carl Barât and Peter Doherty. The band split up in 2004 after having trouble with Pete's drug addiction. The two other members are Gary (drums) and John (bass) who is now the frontman of a band called Yeti. They were an amazing band and most fans hope they'll get back together again someday although it seems very unlikely.
The Libertines used to be one of the best bands in England.
